"Second one I've bought. Last one had an accident with a stray hammer dropping on the pipe. Allows foam can to have continued, occasional usage even after weeks of first use. But you must ensure you spray the tip with foam cleaner but No Nonsense Foam cheaper at Screwfix) for easy continued, hassle free use. If left for months then you should dismount & clean through thoroughly with foam cleaner. Even if you messed up with foam & it dried Youtube has guides to strip down the gun and clean it for reuse if needed."
"Been using the throw away cans for years but always been tempted to buy one. Why didn't I earlier.. Such a difference, tidier job, easier to use and much more effistionent. Don't hold off.. Just buy one, you won't regret it!!!"
"I don't write reviews often, but felt compelled to say: don't hesitate, get one of these and don't look back - as others have said, good quality and will save you money in the long run.
It's hard to imagine the difference between handheld cans and gun-delivered foam, but the difference is real - you can deliver tiny amounts of foam if you wish without spamming half the contents like the handheld cans do. Can also leave the cannister on the gun (until it's empty, at which point you need the gun cleaner to clear the leftover bits in the tube).
One useful tip I will give, get a cheap box of "american/jumbo" style drinking straws - they're the perfect size for clearing out any leftover foam in the shorter plastic "protector" nozzle."
"This is the same gun as used by the builders and window fitters on my project house. I was impressed by the quality of build and really clear instructions. I bought on their recommendation. Don't forget a can of gun cleaner especially if you use it intermittently like me. Continuous use, always with a can of foam fitted, probably wouldn't clog. Forgot to mention it works really well giving full flow control for difficult areas."
"Have avoided using expanding foam for years after many previous disasters - NO MORE! This wonderful tool makes controlling the stuff a breeze. Sturdy construction, excellent price, and the No-Nonsense cleaner which is an essential extra makes cleaning up easy."
"I don't know how this compares to cheaper models, but this is a fab bit of kit. The last time I used expanding foam it went everywhere and made a huge mess. This gun gives so much control. No wastage,no mess, no nonsense. Brilliant!!"
"So much better than my last (a different model) foam applicator gun which caused absolute chaos! This one is simply does the job properly. Be careful not to strip the threads when screwing the foam can on, though. Go gently and it'll work just fine, with the foam applied really well."
"I am a big convert to the world of expanding foam and initially started with handheld tins. Due to high usage I decided to make the switch to gun grade. It was totally the right decision, it is simple to adjust pressure and flow and therefore controllable. However, this is my third gun and not through a fault of the equipment but do not leave canisters connected for prolonged periods or fail to clean it out properly at the end. I attempted to clean out my first gun with foam eater but it doesn't really help and the gun ends up sticking open or not sealing correctly. If you are going buy a from gun (and I suggest if you use a lot of foam you do) then buy some foam gun cleaner too."
